Synopsis

MERCY STREET follows the lives of two volunteer nurses on opposing sides of the war – Mary Phinney and Emma Green.  In the longest occupied city of the war, the Green family’s luxury hotel has been transformed into Mansion House, an army hospital tending to the war’s wounded.  Inspired by memoirs and letters from real doctors and volunteer nurses, the drama explores the expanding boundaries of medicine and the doctors and nurses valiantly struggling to save lives.
